In Response to Erica Elizabeth Ravenwood, her YouTube video, “Transgender, My School Years:” Transgender, My School Years
This was supposed to space-up as an Outline, with all sub-headings indented under their respective parent-headings, but the app justified them all to the same margin.
So, I’ve changed to indicating the Outline structure by going to a Decimal nesting-system. The same way Operating-System versions are Numbered, is how my statements are numbered-here.
My main objective was to be able to reduce this logic to an outline.
The actual response starts right-here–:
I had a majority of what you detail in this video happen to me throughout school, too. I would contribute my own video about it, too, if I thought anybody would watch it, but I’m just far too obscure, and my talking about my life to an empty auditorium would just send the wrong message about *me*. And, I also see a fellow-commenter who likewise says they understand what you were talking-about, too.
I think today’s “conceivable hrt” era, demands that today’s transgender kids get deliberate exposure to just how bad it still was even as very recently as it still was. The fact that transgender people who are pre-passing including pre-hrt, can only transit safely in isolated enclaves,
1. Makes most cis people Ignorant. (And arrogant).
2. Makes pre-hrt’s like me, fully-aware of what transitioning involves, but unable to get past stuff that happens out-here, in order to access it, both stress and increased risk or active threat relative to those who remain-unaware.
3. Means most transgender people who finished puberty well-before expanded- availability hrt, probably still don’t know about it, meaning that they’re still discouraged.
4. Means that both hrt-aware and hrt-unaware adult transgenders living outside the “safe” enclaves, have to stay *closeted*, involuntarily contributing to our own invisibility. Both,
4.1. To *each-other*, so that we all each think that we’re “the only one.” At-least *there*.
4.2. To surrounding *cis* people, thereby reinforcing their extant *Ignorance* and arrogance) (See #1).
5. Pre-passing-level (including pre-hrt) trans people’s segregation to “safe” areas, means that they are in a *cloister* with only *other* people who also traverse space of this level of “safety–;” whereby they progressively *Imprint* on each-other’s both *appearance* and *customs / habits*–.
5.1. This would mean that, if they ever met typical examples of the *transition-impeded* transgenders from *outside* their enclaves, (from what in my videos, I refer-to as “No-Trans-Land–;”aka, “The Forbidden-Zone;” aka, “The Closeted-Districts–;”) they would be unlikely to be able to *recognize* many of us–; and presumably would question the “authenticity” of our otherwise *Identity*, Women with short hair and no makeup. Men who don’t work out, bind, wear prosthetic facial hair, pack, or use stp’s.
5.1.1. Instant, and Imprintative, prohibitive *Culture-Shock*, and Collective-Rejection. 220.127.116.11. The Inability of the *Recognized* contingent of trans people to Recognize the Closeting *Feral* population from *The Forbidden Zone* suddenly joining the transphobic cis set, in *Denying* that there were perhaps *any*, let-alone many* “Additional” transgenders in addition to the ones that already were Recognized.
18.104.22.168.1. The self-Recognized Transgender Community will unnecessarily Continue vastly to Under-Report its Numbers, and remain an acutely-vulnerable, tiny minority–.
22.214.171.124.2. A vast-majority of Closet-District Trans who must continue to Closet, will be discovered then by indifferent, “hit-piece,” journalists, and cis transphobics who then will exploit the fact that such a vast majority of trans people spends its “whole” collective “life,” without enough so-called “dysphoria” to propel them toward so-called “hrt–;” and call-into-question the very *validity* of either *dysphoria* or *transgender identiy* per se.
126.96.36.199.3. Until they would start to apprehend the however-disconcerting *differences* of Closet-District transgenders from Safe-Presentation Enclave transgenders–; they have a continually “self-accelerated” impression or so-called “Projection,” about how “all” transgenders are, including the characteristic of instantly lecturing strangers, who likely wouldn’t even know what a “transgender” person “was–;” about “Pronouning–;”
188.8.131.52.4. As a result, “ambassadors,” who represent thos of us stranded in the “Closet-District–;” (most-places), strut-about, beamingly-prattling in what inevitably seems like a foreign language to both cis people, and unaware trans people,either passing-through their enclaves on their ways to somewhere-else, or even encountering these pubesce”trans-moonies,” who maybe had their car (bicycle) break down in one of *our* neighborhoods. (And Where by “moonies,” I mean they are perceived as actually *coming from* the moon, rather than merely as being a blinded follower of a bizarre cult-leader.
